UNITED STATES: Billie Eilish has opened up about her style developed over the years. The singer responded to the latest criticisms of her attire via Instagram story. She talked about her experience of wearing shirts at the beginning of her career.
In the now-defunct Instagram Story, which has since been shared on Twitter, she wrote, “I spent the first five years of my career getting absolutely OBLITERATED by you fools for being boyish and dressing how I did & constantly being told I’d be hotter if I acted like a woman.”
She criticized her critics as “true idiots” and “bozos” and urged her supporters to “let women exist!” She retaliated against the notion that women must have one sense of style in a subsequent post, joking that women can have various interests.
Eilish argued that femininity does not equal weakness and that wanting to express oneself differently is unheard of and ridiculous. She responded to online trolls and called them “women hating a** weirdos”.
The singer of “Bad Guy” revealed that she deleted all social media apps from her phone during an interview on the Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend podcast in March. She admitted that it was a big issue for her and that she no longer looked at it, as she didn’t grow up with the internet.
The singer discussed how uncomfortable it was to view her-centric social media messages. She noted that she has been doing the same things over the years without making any changes to who she is or how she lives, leading to more and more of what she watches on YouTube and other online content being about her. This is something she doesn’t like.
Eilish has revealed her views on fashion in a September 2021 interview with Vogue. She revealed that her favourite item as a child was big clothes and that she had so many outfits that she would wear one every day. She believes that she has been dressing in this manner for a long time due to her body image.
